Anybody who catches Sportsnet East and Pacific, at 8PM, Boston College are playing Northeastern with our prospect Steve Quailer (#10). Northeastern is the best team of their divison while Boston College is in the middle of the pack. Still Boston College is filled with NHL prospects including 1 Boston Bruin (if you feel like hating a team again tonight...) with d-man Tommy Cross.
Also note that tonight at 5:00 PM on Sportsnet Pacific and at 7:30PM on Sportsnet Ontario, you'll have the Boston University vs Harvard game. Boston University have a lot of NHL draftees (and also the other Chris Higgins...) on that team but there's also one guy who isn't drafted and was talked a lot about drawing some interest from NHL teams, d-man Matt Gilroy. He wears #97. While they're facing Harvard who does have some Quebec flavor in it with the Biega Bros and 2 or 3 other guys from Quebec. Honestly, I don't see a good matchup in that game, Boston University seems much much stronger while the Northeastern game should be tighter. But it would finally be nice to see what this Gilroy is all about. So a game to be taped and 1 to watch live....
MODS: Not that it's that important, but any chance you could put the "Prospect Info" thing prior to the title?

here the take from a bruins and Northeastern fan on Quailer

The most impressive moment I've seen from him this year (which went relatively un-noticed by a lot of the casual hockey fans) was I think the last home game vs Providence. A PU player was skating into our defensive zone with the puck, and Quailer was roughly at the red line, he basically pressed the turbo button and caught right up to the guy. And in one smooth motion, lifted his stick, bumped him off the puck with his hip, stole the puck away, and lead a rush back down the other way.
